Hi Folks

So far a lot of the drafts have not had enough information in the description and  benefits section

The template reads as follows 

 A description of what the intent of the SC is, including what users benefit from the content successfully addressing it (examples are helpful, but not required).
 This is our opportunity to explain why this Success Criteria is really important to real users and without it they can not use content
 Clear information about how the proposal will benefit users, along with justification and evidence of the benefits (this may be a link to a different resource). You can add examples about the user if it helps.
 You can often find evidence in the bellow links, including the COGA Techniques and Background research document. Feel free to add more!

In the benefits section we need to focus on explaining the new material to them and explain why changes were needed. It is really really important, as we want to get these passed, to do this we really want to show the benefits including any evidence.
Bringing example is also useful as many people in WCAG will not have come across coga users who have these issues. 

Please let me know if it is not clear!

All the best

    Hi Lisa,
 As you requested, I updated the Online Safety SC text to:
 “Do not automatically choose options that may disadvantage users without their approval, or add mechanisms that are likely to confuse users in a way that may do them harm.” I believe I have included the other reworded text. Let me know if you want anything else.
